New Orleans… 2.0

Art Shows

So me and Ignacio ended up going back to New Orleans. Mom wanted to go so we just figured we’d take her since we kinda knew where things were from being there this past January. It was surprisingly cold there last time but this time it WAS HOT, just unbearable! It was a straight 96 degrees everyday kind of week, now I know why the tickets were so cheap! We were able to see some of the things I missed last time due to me working on an installation. I really wanted to see some of the historical places that traced back to slavery such as Congo Square and the LaLaurie mansion which we did, but unbeknownst to us it was also the 10th anniversary of hurricane Katrina.  We attended quite a few hurricane Katrina exhibitions which were very informative and at the same time, heart wrenching. There was also an artist market that started at 7pm and ended at midnight on Frenchmen street which was perfect since we were busy trying to catch day time events and our hotel was a few blocks away. I think we need to start working on a night time artist market here in New York, that was ingenious! NOLA, we shall meet again!
